Hey all, Lantz here from Radix Media. In places where Spring weather has broken through the clouds and the wintery wonderland, I hope you’re enjoying the sun! As for us in the Pacific Northwest…well, it’s coming, hopefully sooner than later!
I wanted to share some important news with you all regarding the future of the project.
In early June 2012, Radix Media will be relocating…to Brooklyn, New York!
It’s a huge move, and as stressful as it is figuring out all of the logistics, it’s also very exciting for me. Both my partner and I are from the east coast originally, and we long to be back there, closer to our families and within reach of many bustling Northeastern cities. But this is not the end of Radix! I’ve already got a place to move my shop into, and although I’ll need to get new equipment all over again, I hope that this will allow me to upgrade to a nicer press and purchase particular pieces of bindery equipment that will allow me to diversify the type of projects Radix can print and publish.
If you were planning on printing your next project through Radix – now is the perfect time! It will be quite a feat to move across the country and start from scratch. Your business will help me get established in my new home. Radix will be fully operational in Portland until May 10, 2012. If you have any information on offset printing equipment, bindery equipment, people to connect with on the east coast, please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’m also looking for low-interest loans from my community, in order to help Radix begin anew. If you have money to loan (or donate!), please get in touch!
It’s quite possible that I’ll be selling my current equipment to someone in the community who will continue offering these services, under a different name. I’ll be sure to keep everyone posted about that.
I feel extremely grateful that I’ve gotten to work with all of the great people that I’ve worked with in Portland and can’t wait to hook up with people in New York City for your short-run printing needs!
